Washing

♦ Before shampooing, gently remove any tangles from your hair extensions. Always use a mild shampoo or one specifically formulated for chemically treated hair.
♦ Run the hair under warm (not hot) water. Gently work the shampoo into the hair, stroking downwards from the weft base (top) to the ends. Do not twist, scrub or rub the hair.
♦ When clean, rinse thoroughly under warm running water until the water runs clear. Be sure to rinse until all shampoo is removed, as improper rinsing could result in damage.
♦ Just like your own hair, human hair extensions need to be conditioned after shampooing to maintain a healthy shine and promote styling ease.Place a small amount of conditioner in your hand. Gently work into the hair and let sit for three to five minutes.
♦ Rinse thoroughly in warm water. Gently towel blot to remove excess water.
♦ While wet, gently comb the hair to remove tangles. Using a large toothed comb, move in a downward motion away from the clips and to the ends. Do not use a bristle brush on wet hair as it may pull out or break the hair.
♦ Hang to air dry, set in rollers, or use a blow dryer on a low setting, as desired. Your human hair clip in extensions will not require washing as often as your own hair, wash only when they start to look dull and lifeless.
Styling

♦ Steam rollers and/or wet setting are the safest way to curl your human hair.
♦ Blow dryers, curling irons and other thermal tools may be used on low settings. Remember, the hair may scorch if the setting is too high.
♦ For cutting, or any chemical processes such as perming or coloring, take the extensions to a professional stylist.

How I learn Wig Making

What’s the main point ,when you start to learn human hair wigs and synthetic wigs making?
I am trying to make my “learning” on a budget. I have been so lucky in that some people have given me old material that they don’t need and I could apply. I have bought the bare necessities to learn ventilating with (which is the term for knotting the hair to the foundation material) as I figured that this is probably the most important part before I start doing anything else. The ventilation makes or breaks the wig and I reckon is of equal importance to the foundation . This foundation is cap construction. It up to basic technology and comfort degree of wigs.

All of my learning thus far is self-taught, again for budget reasons and also for practical purposes because there are no wig making classes or courses nearby. Plus it seems that wig making courses are very expensive over here . I am not discounting the idea of attending more formal learning at some point, as there are some elements I would love to get professional guidance in, but for now I am happy to continue with what I have been doing.

before-and-after

before-and-after

What is your ‘plan of action’ for the future?
I started off practicing the knots I will be using – single and double knots. I have since learn how to do a split knot also; although opinion is divided over whether this is a “real” wig making knot. So to begin with, I was just doing rows of random knots. My next stage/latest project has been to construct the first inch of the back, the crown and the vertex – a bit like a “mini hair piece”. To most people this would look a bit like a small hair topper or closure. My reason for doing this is because, rightly or wrongly, I believe that these areas are the hardest to get right and to perfect. They require practice and in doing lots of this, I am actually learning how to achieve the various special effects needed to create a piece or a wig the way I would want it.

I intend to finish this piece of work shortly and I will be posting information and pictures to show what I am doing. Once I have finished this, I hope to have obtained or be in the process of obtaining my professional materials in order to move onto the next stage of my education, which is: how to make a foundation. Making the correct foundation is important because I have specific needs that I have to address when I make it. I am sure it will be a bit of trial and error. Once I have nailed that, I can move on to actually making the wig.

What’s been the hardest aspect of your wig making education process so far?
Two things: the research element and double knots!
Research element – I have spent literally 100s if not 1000s of hours researching wigs and wig making. It’s almost embarrassing to admit how many hours I have spent looking for information, watching videos, reading books and so on. I guess having a slightly obsessive personality helps! It’s a lot of work and commitment required and more so because I am doing this alone. The upside of this is that it is very satisfying to find the correct information and everything you end up doing really has meaning or a little story behind it.
Double knots – I am sure that most people don’t find them hard, but because I was unwittingly using the wrong (in my opinion) needle, I made the task a lot harder on myself than it should actually be. I am not a fan of double knots even now I know how to do them as I find they are quite bulky.

What Are Pre-bonded Hair extensions?

Pre-bonded hair extensions are pieces of hair, real or synthetic, that have a bonding agent pre-applied at one tip. The extensions hair are used to increase the length and fullness of a person’s natural hair and can be cut and styled just like real hair. There are several types of pre-bonded hair extensions, such as nail tip, rare remy nail tip, and stick tip. Each type comes in a variety of colors and textures.

pre-bonded-hair-extensions

pre-bonded-hair-extensions

Nail tip pre-bonded hair extensions are also called U-tip extensions. During the manufacturing process, bonding glue is placed at one end of the extension. A hair stylist attaches the glued tip of the extension to a client’s hair with a professional heat connector clamp. This clamp resembles a thin hair straightening tool and has a built in lip to place the glue tip into. The hair stylist squeezes the top and bottom sections of the heat connector clamp together and applies pressure to melt the glue, bonding the client’s natural hair to the extension.

Remy nail tip hair extensions are assembled so that all the hair cuticles are running in the same direction. This prevents tangles and keeps hair looking smoother and neater for a longer period of time. Remy extensions may also be more expensive when comparing prices  to other pre-bonded hair extensions. These extensions are applied in the same way as regular nail tip pre-bonded hair extensions.

Stick tip, or I-tip pre-bonded hair extensions are also manufactured with the bonding glue at the end. This type of extension is different because of the way it is attached to the hair. A hair stylist uses small attachment devices called micro rings, micro loops, or shrink tubes to adhere the extensions onto the client’s real hair.

Micro rings and loops are small hoops that match the client’s hair color. The hair stylist clamps the micro rings or micro loops around the extension and the natural hair and then squeezes the ring tightly using a specially designed connector tool. The shrinkable tube method uses plastic rings that are applied in the same way, but are closed with a heat clamp to bond the plastic ring and the glue together.

The bonding agent most commonly used on pre-bonded hair extensions is keratin glue. This glue is formulated to prevent damage to the hair while providing maximum hold. As hair grows out, the glue can loosen and the extensions will need to be tightened or reapplied. Keratin glue is reportedly the safest glue to use for hair extensions. A hair stylist can remove the extensions with keratin remover.

What are butterfly clips used for clips hair extensions?

Butterfly clips are clips that have two halves connected by a hinge and held closed by a spring that, when squeezed, opens up so that the halves resemble butterfly wings. When closed, the spring holds the clip clamped shut onto whatever object it was placed around. The most commonly thought of type of butterfly clips are the clips made for hair, although other kinds have different uses as well. Butterfly hair clips use a claw shape to grip onto, behind, and underneath many strands of hair in order to stay secure, rather than a flat edge or other shape that tends to slip.

Hair butterfly clips range from tiny clips meant to hold back small strands of hair at a time or provide simple decoration, to large enough clips to hold a long, thick ponytail up in a stylish and versatile hairstyle. Typically made of plastic, butterfly clips can be found in a large amount of colors and patterns. While most butterfly clips are made of plastic to avoid adding excess weight or damaging the hair, metal clips are also available sometimes, especially in the smaller clip styles.

While most clips do not actually have anything to do with a butterfly aside from the shape of the clip, decorative butterflies, as well as glitter, flowers, and other decorations, are sometimes added to clips targeted at young girls. Occasionally, the back portion of the clip that is squeezed to open the rest of the clip is designed in the shape, and sometimes colors, of real butterfly wings. Hair clips designed for everyday wear for adults typically come in more muted, solid colors, such as brown, black, navy blue, and others, and usually do not have a very fancy or decorative shape.

It is very helpful to use butterfly clips during some hair styling procedures. For instance, during coloring, sections of hair can be held out of the way by these clips so that the hair dye does not bleed or rub onto hair that is meant to be left un-dyed. Curling rollers that need to be secured and left in the hair for a period of time can also be held on by butterfly clips, because the wide shape and curved claw of the clips cover a large area of the roller evenly and typically leave little or no visible indent in the hair, a problem often experienced when using smaller or tighter clips.

Instructions

1. Wash and condition your natural hair with a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. This is very important because the extensions will be in the hair for awhile, and having an oily or dirty scalp can result in clogged pores. Dry your hair completely.

2. Use a wide-tooth comb to part your hair down the middle of your head from front to back, then perpendicularly, from ear to ear. This will divide your hair into four sections: two in the front and two in the back. Use claw clips to hold the hair in place.

3. Remove the clip from one of the bottom sections of parted hair. Use a wide-tooth comb to part and separate a 1-inch section of hair from this section. Measure and cut a 1-inch section of the EZ Weft® along the seam. Apply bonding glue to the ends to prevent loose hairs.

4. Separate the 1-inch section of hair into small, 1/4-inch sections. Position the extension at the roots, and use a large clip to hold the extension and natural hair together.

5. Insert the EZ pulling needle in a downward motion through one of the micro ring tubes, from top to bottom. Push the needle completely through the ring.

6. Hold the EZ Weft® between your thumb and forefinger. Gather a 1/4-inch strand of natural hair and hook it onto the EZ tool. Use the tool to thread the hair through the micro ring, and pull it completely through. Do this for the remaining micro tubes on the 1-inch piece of EZ Weft®.

7. Lift the natural hair up, then use the EZ closer tool, or hair extension pliers, to press the micro ring closed. This will attach the extension to the natural hair.

8. Repeat Steps 3 through 7 to complete the first section of hair you are working with. Move to the next lower section of parted hair and repeat Steps 3 through 7. Continue this process for the remaining two sections of hair at the top until all of the extensions have been attached. Leave some natural hair without extensions in each of the four sections.

9. Cover the EZ Weft® with your natural hair. Brush and style your hair as usual so that your hair blends naturally with the extensions.

10. Wash your natural hair with extensions in cool to lukewarm water. Use only mild shampoos and conditioners and rinse the hair thoroughly in cool water. Use a towel to pat your hair dry. Brush and style hair once completely dry.

How to choose the lace front wig

When shopping for a Remy front lace wig, it’s important to understand hair types. Hair strands have cuticles, which all lay in the same direction. If hair is cut and this direction is maintained when it is attached to the front-lace wig, the end result is Remy hair, which is much more natural and easy to style. Remy hair comes from a variety of sources, and varies according to texture. The common types are Chinese Remy, or Yaki hair, and Indian Remy. Both are of high quality, but Chinese Remy is thicker and coarser, and is a good choice for African American women, especially if it has been processed with the Yaki texture. Indian Remy hair is silkier, and can be a good choice for a laced wig for almost anybody.

Another thing to consider when choosing the perfect Remy front lace wig is hair density. Although some people think that a very dense wig is best, often a wig with a lighter density of hair will look more natural. This is a personal choice, which can sometimes be influenced by the styles that you wish to wear. Another thing to consider when choosing a front-lace wig is the manner by which the hair has been attached to the wig. If the laced wig is hand-tied, you will have much more flexibility with styling and parting the hair, and it will look more natural.

Remember that a Remy lace front wig will have a lace mesh cap, which will allow you to attach it at the front hairline with special adhesive or tape. A front-lace wig will provide a natural looking hairline, even when wearing styles that pull the hair back from the face. However, you will need a full lace wig for styles such as a high ponytail. It’s important to apply a laced wig to the hairline properly, to create a natural appearance, and also to avoid damaging your natural hair.

There are different types of foundations used for the wig base. Most Remy front lace wigs are made on Swiss or French lace. These are lightweight and comfortable, and provide a good base for attaching the hair. However, there are also other types of caps used for front-lace wigs. There are laced wig caps made from a combined French lace and stretchable material, which can be great for women who have total hair loss. There are also vacuum cap wigs, which are custom made to the client’s head.

How to choose a Clip-In Hair Extension

Clip-in extensions are the easy way to add volume or length (or both) to your hair without any heavy commitment. Clip in extensions can be applied and removed at a moment’s notice on your own clock, with no salon appointments necessary. Remember to choose colors within two or three shades of your current hair color for a natural look.

clip in extensions

clip in extensions

There are two types of clip-in hair extensions, natural and synthetic. Natural clip-in hair extensions are constructed of human hair and can be treated just as you treat your own hair. Natural clip-in hair extensions can be washed, dried, curled, straightened and dyed. They are considerably more expensive than synthetic clip-in hair extensions, but require far less maintenance and are durable enough to last a few years. Synthetic hair extensions are comprised of various synthetic fibers (polyester, silicone and monofilament to name a few) and are typically very heavy compared to natural hair. When blown, synthetic hair stays flat (due to its weight) or sometimes blows in the opposite direction of the natural hair it is paired with. Synthetic clip-in hair extensions cannot be dyed, and are difficult to wash and maintain. It is for this reason, it is wiser to go with natural clip-in hair extensions.

After you choose which type of clip-in hair extension you want to wear, you can choose the color and texture. For a natural look, choose clip-in hair extensions that are close to your own hair color and texture. If you plan on trying different hairstyles, clip-in extensions with straight hair will be the most versatile. Do you want to add volume or length? This will determine how many clip-in hair extensions you will need. To add volume, 6 to 8 clip-in hair extensions are required; to add length, you will need at least 8 extensions. If you are looking for both volume and length, up to a dozen clip-in hair extensions will create the look of long, thick hair.

Clip-in hair extensions can be purchased at your local beauty supply store or salon. There are two types of clip-in hair extensions to buy: assembled and ready-to-use, or pieces that must be assembled. Clips that are assembled can immediately be applied to the hair. Extensions that are not ready for use must be sewn together. Assembly involves sewing individual clips and loose hair together to create a weft (the clip-in extension that adheres to the hair). Prices vary between the two types of clip in hair extensions, and creating your own weft is more affordable. If you are pressed for time or do not want to bother with creating your own weft, you can purchase the ready-made clip-in hair extensions. Otherwise, purchase the hair, clips (which look like small combs that snap shut), hair thread and a hair needle

Different usage ways for Hair Extensions

Clip in Extensions Smaller, temporary extensions usually don’t require the services of a professional. The most basic type of extensions simply clip onto existing hair, a process that can usually be done at home without much effort, although a stylist may help attach them or dye the hair to better match the wearer’s natural color. Hair attached this way usually only lasts for a day or a night, although they can be reused repeatedly. Micro Links and Shrink Links Longer-lasting extensions can be added to natural hair with metal rings or keratin tubing. In this process, the hair is attached to a small ring or tube, which is clamped onto pieces of real hair. This is a popular method, as damage to the natural hair is minimal, and no adhesives or solvents are used that could potentially irritate sensitive skin. They can, however, be difficult to remove, add additional weight to the hair, and can loosen after a few washings, releasing some of the strands. Experts don’t usually recommend this method for fine hair.

Bonding Bonding or gluing usually involves longer wefts of hair, tracks that can be up to 6 inches (15.24 cm) long. An adhesive is applied to the roots of the hair before the extension is applied. This method is usually relatively quick to do, but does not last as long as others. Fusing A special adhesive can also be used to fuse extensions into real hair. Small pieces of hair can be attached with this method. Hot fusion may involve braiding the extension into the natural hair and bonding them together with a wax adhesive. Less commonly, cold fusion methods may be used to attach the extensions. Fusing usually takes several hours to apply, and will usually require a similar amount of time to remove, although it depends on the exact technique and adhesives used. There are products that allow fusion to be done at home but professionally fused extensions tend to last longer and cost more.

Weaving Hair extensions can also be sewn into the hair. The person’s natural hair is usually braided tight and close to the scalp in cornrows, and the weft sewn into the braid. The process can take a long time, as the person’s own hair must be braided first, and some people find the entire procedure to be very painful. This method may also be quite expensive, although it usually lasts for a long time. Choosing a Stylist Making the decision to get hair extensions can represent a substantial financial and time commitment. The initial cost will be increased with professional products designed to keep the extensions, as well as the natural hair, healthy; extensions also typically require frequent trips to the salon for maintenance as existing hair grows out. An inexperienced stylist can make poor choices resulting in hair damage, so anyone considering hair extensions should choose one who has had the proper training and experience to maximize the investment required. Hair extension professionals are typically licensed cosmetologists well trained in the many methods of applying hair extensions. When choosing a stylist, a person should ask about training, certification, and experience, as well as be specific about his or her needs and concerns. Some stylists keep a portfolio with photos of past customers, and will offer references upon request. Further Reading: Weft Hair Extensions
